Thank you for your background tip.

Yep, I love the Zeiss lens. About twenty years ago I had my first SLR (Minolta Maxxum series), in 2004 I switched to the digital world (Konica Minolta Dimage A7), then Pentax K5 - all of them with the kit zoom lens. Last year I got my first Zeiss lens (RX1) and it opened my eyes (naturally also due to the ff sensor)!

Compared to the image quality I regarded as being pretty good before, the Zeiss + ff combo is just out of this world. Unfortunately I had to sell my RX1 due to financial limitations, but could never really enjoy using its "more sensible" replacement, the RX100MKII. About two months ago I finally bought the A7 and the superb Zeiss lens - and don't regret it all.

You sold your RX1.. Nooooooooooooo!
